Celebrations have commenced; the hustle and bustle of Christmas is all around us. Shopping malls are full, work parties, and family and friends gathering to have fun and spend time together.
As Christmas approaches and we celebrate the birth of our Savior, please remember in prayer those who struggle during the holidays. Christmas can be a particularly difficult time for our residents, so we do our best to make December a very festive time with lots of carols, food, fellowship and love!
During this season I encourage us all to focus on the real reason for the season. Christ came into the world so that we, a very imperfect world, would receive salvation. Let’s celebrate His gift of grace, mercy and love by extending it to others.
"For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6 | KJV |
